A rare art deco gem goes on sale in East London

A one-bedroom flat in the coveted art deco Strand Building has hit the market in Hackney, East London.

Built in 1925 as the Electricity Demonstration Halls, the Strand Building was recently converted into apartments, incorporating period pastels into the communal entrance hall. This first-floor property has been beautifully preserved and updated even further, with new apartment-sized appliances and built-in features. The rooms enjoy views to the street and vast landscaped courtyard through wide windows. The courtyard garden is dotted with palm trees and mature plantings.

Brazilian cherry floors and countertops strike a tropical tone across the layout. A pale-blue heritage colour painted up to the dado rail adds interest to the walls and contrasts well with custom wood storage. The kitchen, fitted with new wood-framed cabinetry, is open on one side and tiled to match the vintage-look bathroom.

The London property is warmed by underfloor heating and radiators encased in bespoke wood covers. Parking spaces are available in the basement garage.

The building is steps from pedestrianised Mare Street and the popular restaurants of Urswick Road, with Clapton Square and St John’s churchyard in between. The Modern House has listed the property for £495,000.
